Woodbridge Primary School - Book Club - The London Eye Mystery25 March 2011 by Cliff
There is no restriction on age when it comes to people wanting to gather together to talk about enjoying a good book. At Woodbridge Primary School a group of pupils has been meeting regularly with Catherine Larner to discuss a story selected for them from Young Browsers children's bookshop in the town.
Previous titles have included Broken Glass by Sally Grindley and Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Today the children - Andrea, Angus, Josh, Katie, Oliver, Raffy, Rikki and Thomas, all from year five - are talking about The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd.
This is an award-winning book which centres on the famous London visitor attraction, where a young boy disappears. His family are bewildered - how could he have vanished when his young cousins saw him enter the pod yet he wasn't there with the other tourists when it came back down to the ground? Feeling worried and responsible, the brother and sister try to solve the mystery.
